(breakfast, lunch, and dinner) is fully vegetarian (very tasty and natural). The local diet is heavy on rice, beans, chickpeas, lentils, potatoes, yuca (casaba), plantains, corn, and plenty of vegetables.
Our own organic products from our garden will be available for consumption as well! We bake our own bread, prepare our arepas, consume products high in fiber and eat home cooked meals together.
Eco Hostel is a fully vegetarian establishment. Which means you can take this as an opportunity to detox your body for 2 weeks (with a good diet and no meat/chicken/fish). But for those who prefer to eat meat, feel free to try out the local restaurants in the village.
Some of the reasons for offering vegetarian meals consist of the following:
—We do not want to consume meat every day.
—Its consumption contributes to & harms our global climate (environmental impact)
—We do not wish to contribute to the constant sacrifice of animals (animal rights).
